Subject: Folklore: a very bass tall tale:

A couple was happily married for decades, and their friends were shocked when they decided to seek counseling. Divorce seemed a sure thing. It seems they had quit talking to each other long ago. All the kids had left home.   Their therapist was quite good at his job, but After 8 months, he was frustrated beyond belief! The couple had not said 2 words to each other in all that time!!!

One day he had a rather crazy idea that he thought it just might help.

He brought his upright bass to the therapy session and began to play.

In about five minutes, the couple was chattering away amicably. After an hour, they had decided to give their marriage another try! By the time they left for home, they were kissing passionately.

As the therapist was leaving, his secretary asked him, "Why do you figure your idea worked to get them communicating?"

He answered, "I've never seen anyone who wouldn't talk during a bass solo!!"

(I got this folk tale from Johnny Widdicomb---bass player for THE PIPER ROAD SPRING BAND from Central Wisconsin. Amazingly, to some--but not to others, these guys were one of Bill Monroe's favorite bands.)
